New Judge Dredd movie?

According to the Sun they are exhibiting a vehicle from the forthcoming Judge Dredd movie at the Birmingham Motor Show.

There is nothing on IMDB about this. There is some chat online about nw movies, but nothing concrete.

Do you think a new movie (not starring Sly) would be a good thing (and is it really being made?).

The computer games company Rebellion bought the rights to 2000AD a few years ago and have been trying to make not one but two low budget Dredd films ever since. So far no luck...

There's a website for it somewhere...

Anything they print must be taken with several wheelbarrows full of salt.

I saw that picture in the paper (i didnt buy the paper,we get it at work honest!) and it does look a lot like the cars that were in the original Sly Stallone movie.

My ultimate hope for a JD movie would be for it to be animated with an 18 script written by John Wagner.

Could never see that happening though...

The last I read (2005) Rebellion were still making those two Dredd films (one being called Dreddlock or somesuch? The other dealing with Judge Death and the Dark Judges a la their videogame of not so long ago). The reason it's taken so long is that they were holding out for lottery money to put into the production(s).

EDIT: it's called Dredd Reckoning, not Dreddlock. Knew it was some naff play on words, though.

Nope, but being in the Matrix and Lord of the Rings trilogies has upped his recognition factor somewhat.

He's hardly unknown.

I'm still waiting for a directors cut!! This was posted on Aint it cool news back in 2001, I think its safe to say it isn't going to happen now

Quote:
Well I don't know if any one remembers the Flop Judge Dredd?...Yeah Thats the film that was taken away from the director because Stallon was a cry baby!..Danny Cannon Has decided if he could sit down and do his own cut of the film it might be ALOT better..Is this possible?..Anchor Bay will work with disney's Hollywood pictures (whats left of it) to produce Danny Cannon's cut of Judge Dredd..This is a very possible Early 2003 DVD.
Also, according to IMDB,

Quote:
Director 'Cannon, Danny' was so disheartened over his constant creative disputes with Sylvester Stallone that he swore he would never again work with another big-name actor. He also claimed that the final version was completely different from the script, due to the changes Stallone demanded.

Man, I'd love to see a new Dredd movie, but I'd hate to see a crappy budget hamper the scale of megacity 1's squalor.

Cannon's been banging on about recutting Dredd since the laserdisc days: it'll never happen. The market for such a thing must be diminutive.
